Wet Prong - McCoy Hollow Connector Trail is a 0.5 mile point-to-point trail located near Mammoth Cave, Kentucky and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Part of a 21 mile loop I hiked starting at First Creek parking lot.
First night: Stayed at First Creek campsite B
Walked to McCoy Hollow Trail
Second Night: Stayed at McCoy Hollow Campsite
Walked to Wet Prong Trail and connected back at the parking lot.
Horrible trail!!! Made impassible by horse traffic, mud everywhere even though it had not rained in a very long time. We had one hiker sink into the mud up to his waist! If you aren't a horseback rider avoid this trail at all costs.
Trail can be muddy. We enjoyed the creek views and a nice place for horses to get a refreshing drink. Beautiful.
Wet Prong for the most part is a nasty bog created by horseback riders. There are a few highlights when crossing the wet prong that make it better. The McCoy Hollow trail itself is very nice crossing over several springs with close up views and knob summit views of the Green River.
